Grape Variety: Gewürztraminer
Vineyard / Origin: Hillside vineyards in the finest sites of Tramin-Termeno.
Soil: Marly, light, well ventilated and warm up quickly in spring.
Winemaking: The grapes are lightly crushed and the juice is cold macerated for a few hours together with the skins. The mass is then pressed, the must is clarified by natural sedimentation and fermentation takes place at a constant temperature of 20°C. All these procedures combine to exalt the typical varietal character of the wine.
Deion: This is a highly individual wine and a copybook Gewürztraminer: full, bright straw yellow, concentrated with a strong aromatic character reminiscent of dried flowers and rose petals which develops and intensifies in the glass. Full-bodied, luscious but dry on the palate, the opulence cut by vibrant, firm acidity.
Food Choices: On its own as an aperitif, with shellfish, goose liver and gorgonzola cheese.
Allergic-Info: This wine can contain sulfites
Alcoholic content: 13.00 %

Sextner grey cheese dairy Sexten, spicy and aromatic low-fat cheese which is prepared with onions, olive oil, some pepper and salt, speciality South Tirol.
Harmonious, sapid and aromatic fragrance. It is excellent as an aperitif, goes well with starters and particularly with delicately flavoured dishes, most of all fish based ones.
purple colour with garnet hints. Quite pronounced fruity aroma with notes of red and black berries, paired with floral, mineral and spicy nuances (black pepper). Medium to full-bodied, good intensity on the palate, balanced, with present ripe tannin. Good length.
The Pinot grigio is a full-bodied white wine with a straw-yellow hue, a floral nose, and pleasantly smooth character. With a little aging, undertones of nuts and honey develop.
